News, thoughts, and ramblings from the minds behind Memphis Made Brewing Co.
You may have noticed something new on store shelves around town recently.
That's because we're sending out newly-designed cans of our three year-round beers: Cat Nap, Fireside, and Junt.
Be assured that the beers are the same fresh, full-flavored liquids you've come to know and love. We just decided it was time to freshen things up.
We worked with Harvest Creative to design the cans, giving them a clean look.
Look for the new cans at stores around town. You can find most of the accounts which carry out beer here: https://www.memphismadebrewing.com/beer-locator/
We also sell these beers, in addition to seasonal and limited release beers, at out taproom. It's open every day 4-7 pm until further notice.
Memphis Made Brewing Co. is teaming up with 98.1 The Max and Ajax Distributing Company of Memphis to help hospitality workers in uncertain times.
We're canning some of our Fireside beer in special 98.1 The Max cans with a portion of sales going to the Memphis Food Industry Emergency Worker Assistance Fund.
Edible Memphis has set up this fund, located at www.gofundme.com/f/memphisfoodworkers.
As part of the promotion, 98.1 The Max is highlighting the beer as part of its “Let’s Toast a Maximum Rocker” feature at noon and 5 p.m.
Edible Memphis has made almost 100 grants of $500 to laid-off or downsized workers to help bridge the need until more federal stimulus dollars are available, according to Bill Ganus, publisher of Edible Memphis. But there is still a need.
"Support fatigue is definitely setting in,” he said. “I completely get it. If you get a second wind, though, there are hundreds of requests from service industry workers that we haven't yet been able to support.”
Harvest Creative designed the cans for Memphis Made.
The cans will be available at hundreds of retailers in Shelby County, such as Kroger, Trader Joe’s, Buster’s Liquors & Wines, Joe's Wines and Liquor, Cash Saver, Superlo Foods, Cordelia’s Market, Fresh Market, Corks Wine & Spirits, and more.
We figured everyone could use a HUG right about now. So we're putting it in a six pack.
Introducing HUG Wheat Ale. This smooth wheat ale with late addition hops is sure to put a smile on your face.
Since normal is out the window these days, we're gonna do something abnormal. A t-shirt, beer, and gift card package. Okay, it's not that abnormal, but we've never done one, so it's new to us.
Shout to our friends at Meddlesome Brewing for the inspiration. Here we go.
Tier one $40: you get a HUG LIFE shirt, and two six packs of HUG.
Tier two $75: you get a HUG LIFE shirt, a case of HUG, and a $20 gift card to use when we open back up.
Tier three $100: you get TWO HUG LIFE shirts, a case of HUG, and a $50 gift card to use when we open back up.
We’re only doing a 150 of these total. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order. When they get here we will notify you and you can pick them up.
In your email, please include the following:
* Your full name
* Shirt size
* Shirt color (Black, Blue, Red, Green, or Brown) (Artwork will be white on all shirts)
* Phone number, so we can call you back for payment info.
Out of concern for our customers and employees, Memphis Made Brewing Co. is closing our taproom until further notice to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Memphis Made beer is making its way into the Magnolia State!
In our first expansion outside of Shelby County, we’re sending our beer throughout North Mississippi.
We signed a distribution agreement with Clark Beverage Group and they took delivery of Cat Nap, Fireside, and Junt cans this week. We’re starting with cans first but expect to see kegs in the coming months as well.
Memphis Made has been looking at North Mississippi for a long time and we’re excited to be able to send out beer down south.
Clark will distribute Memphis Made beers into Desoto, Tunica, Tate, Marshall, Panola, Lafayette, Yalobusha, Quitman, Tallahatchie, Bolivar, Coahoma, Sunflower, Washington, Benton, Tippah, Union, Alcorn, Tishomingo, Prentiss, Itawamba, Lee, Pontotoc, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Calhoun, Webster, Oktibbeha, Monroe, Lowndes, and Clay Counties.
